Hello, everyone and welcome to a new edition of the Daily Stock Watch! There has been lots of market movement for Legacy cards lately and much to my chagrin and disbelief, a friend who is into the format has jokingly told me that it's because people who are having a midlife crisis would rather invest in Magic cards rather than Corvettes. Ofcourse, this should be taken with a grain of salt and some seriousness if you're into speculating -- and it just so happened that we love speculating! Our preview card for today is one of those cards that have stayed under the radar for the past few years, and is actually peeking just now due to buyouts and Commander purposes.
Merely a bulk card for the past decade or so, Fecundity is now at its all-time high of $5.64 even though it barely sees competitive play. The last time that I remember seeing this in a Modern deck was actually in a table top list that kinda looked like this:
The list above is like a frustrated UR Storm combo that aims to create a chain of spells that produces creatures and tokens that would be sacrificed to Fecundity for more gasoline, and later on resulting to multiple resolution of Empty the Warrens which could easily be sacrificed to Siege-Gang Commander if you have enough mana to do so. There's no denying that it is a good idea to have a low cost draw-enabler in this card, and the times have changed enough for players to realize that cards which help you gain more cards are pretty good inclusions in your deck. Although this could backfire eventually since it allows both players to refill their hands with every creature that dies, building a concept that abuses its use will always work to your advantage. After all, don't you think that everyone loves drawing cards?
I'm not saying that these three other cards would shoot up like Fecundity did, but it's a good idea to keep some of them if you are a believer. I like cards that are cheap and has the potential to shoot up in value over time, so we might be headed somewhere good here with these low budget specs. As for our featured card, I think that it's time to start moving it if you've got buyers. It's seeing these gains because of supply exhaustion, and not because of demand.
At the moment, online stores such as StarCityGames, Card Kingdom, and ChannelFireball are all out of stock of Fecundity, and should be restocking soon at the same value as that of how much they are up for grabs via TCGPlayer. You could still find a variety of different expansions of the card via TCGPlayer for anywhere between $2-$5, but I'm not really a fan of the card so just try selling off for now. Foils are not actually good pickups but if you could find real cheap trades or have the chance to pick them up from bulk bins, then fire away.
** EXTRA NOTES **
I've been with Quiet Speculation for more than half a year now, and I'd like to thank everyone who reads this segment and gives me some extra heads up if I miss any detail, criticism if they think I'm looking highly at a card, and just about any other thing that you share in the comments section. I'm not leaving the company, but I'm actually celebrating my birthday today (which explains this cheesy part of the segment). I look forward to more previews and speculations with everyone in the future!
And that’s it for today's edition of the Daily Stock Watch! See you again next time, as we continue to speculate on cards that might be on the rise, or try to get rid of the ones that are at risk of losing value. As always, feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below.
